WASTE TYPE GUIDE

What waste types you can put into a skip bin

The identification of your waste type is normally fairly straight forward, however it is important because certain waste types are prohibited from being placed in skips and also in many cases, the waste type affects the price of skip services.

It is important to correctly specify your intended waste type because placement of other waste types may result in additional disposal charges after the skip is collected. The table below provides some guidelines. If you have any doubt as to which waste type your waste belongs, please feel free to call PJ’s Waste and our experienced staff will be happy to assist you.

When selecting a waste type (E.g. general waste) you must ensure that no other types of waste are placed in the skip. If this occurs, you will be liable to pay for the disposal costs, for the items as general waste. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for additional information.

The inclusion of any material containing asbestos, any form of insulation material, or any other dangerous material is strictly prohibited!
